Exclamation Any Muslims here??

As a muslim myself, I was hoping to find other muslim sisters to help encourage me and motivate me to make this healthy change for the sake of Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala..
I find myself uneasy to speak to people as i normally do on a daily basis, because Im not sure how they will react if I use arabic religious terms. (ie: SubhanAllah! Insha'Allah, As-Salaamu Alaikum, etc...)
I hope to find atleast one other sister (or even brother!) that wants to help make a support group for other muslims on this site, so that we dont have to be so cautious with what we say.
Insha'Allah someone will reply

Im not muslim but i just wanted to say welcome to the site. My religion is very important to me so I understand your wanting to find someone who is muslim. Good luck! It looks like form one of your other posts that you are 18 so why not come on over and join us in the 20-somethings forum as well.

Hi, welcome to 3fc!

I'm almost certain we have at least a few Muslims here. Hopefully they'll find your post

Thank you for your kindness CandyKisses and Suzanne (sorry if I have spelled your names wrong )

And Wa'Alaikum Salaam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh ktgk! I am glad to see atlease one muslim here besides myself

How is Wisconsin? Ive never been there.. I've only really traveled the west coast states, and a few southern ones.

Insha'Allah your quest to become a healthier person will go smoothly. Dont let Shaytaan bring you down. Allahu Akbar!

Well...Wisconsin is starting to get cold, hehe, mashaAllah I like that, though.

How do you like Tunesia? I love Tunesian food, but it's not the healthiest in the world...

InshaAllah you'll be able to reach your goals with ease!

I do miss the snow.. But I like the fact that Tunisia has so many different climates, so there is always atleast one fruit and vegetable in season that I like to eat Right now, lemons, oranges, peas, cauliflower, lettuce, eggplant and many others are just starting to be ripe enough to taste good

I love it here!! Things are just so much more peacefull. And I love that no one judges me too much.. I still get the occasional comment from my sister in law and cousin.. But thankfully I know its because they love me Alhamdulillah.

Ah...sounds like Syria, too...I love that they always have fresh fruits and veggies straight off local farms (or direct from the courtyard in the case of some fruits, mashaAllah).

I like Syria. I don't know how much it differs from Tunesia, but my husband is from Aleppo, which is pretty famous for it's pious population. I really love it there, but it has drawbacks, too. I get more flack for wanting to stay fit than if I were to just let myself go completely, subhanAllah.

My husband watched the entire Bab al-Hara during Ramadan, subhanAllah. Even my three year old liked it, hehehe. I guess it caught on pretty well all over the Arab world.

I've had a pretty awful couple of days as far as eating and exercise go...my husband and oldest daughter left for Syria on Friday and will be gone five weeks, subhanAllah...my dad took me out for pizza last night and I made lasagne and invited my brother and sil over tonight. InshaAllah the breastfeeding will help with that...and I'm not eating late tonight again. I stopped at my normal cut-off point (7 PM).

How are you doing?

Fi aman Allah

I just wanted to throw my welcome into the ring. I am not Muslim (I'm not actually very religious at all) but I'm an historian and I'm fascinated by other cultures and religions. I'd love for you to keep posting and to help all of us learn more about you and your culture.
